Paragon has a set that has the "A" headmark...here is a photo: http://www.paragonreproductions.com/popup.aspx?src=images/Product/large/1922K.jpg

If interested....here is the ordering info: http://www.paragonreproductions.com/p-358832-engine-mount-attaching-bolt-kit.aspx

BTW....John is right my Camaro mount bolts have the "A" headmark, washers, and the castle nut.

Chris.....I have a 07C 1968 Norwood car.  Haven't had a chance to get to the garage with the camara but I did go by and look.  It has a coating of black and white speckle and the gas filler cover is speckled but the screw looks like a regular phosphate one and it appears to be speckled behind the filler tube as well.

Hope that helps...

Hey Chris,
  I have a 68 Z28 with an original trunk.  I will try to get some photos today.

Would the engine mount for a 68 z28 302 be the same as what was used on the 68 350ss?
I ran into the same problem and am looking for original style mounts for a 350.

I understood the 283 and 327 to use the same mounts and 302 and 350 to use the same as well.
Not sure if this is true though.

Cheers,
John
Hey John,
According to my 1976 parts manual the 302 and 350 had the same part number.  I have found two sources and they are both Corvette speciality companies.
      Paragon Reproductions -   http://www.paragonreproductions.com/p-357341-engine-mount.aspx?SectionFilterID=0
      Long Island Corvette Supply - http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?parta~dyndetail~Z5Z5Z50000370a~Z5Z5Z5AAEXE~P35.00~~~~S2NQ104C4474197105221h~Z5Z5Z5~Z5Z5Z50000370a
     
Just not sure they are the same as the ones for the Camaro.  Might give them a call and see what their opinion is as to the fit.  Check my links above for the contact info.

Never used the Spruce but it looks like it is a lower grade version of the EN-48.  At least that is what the Seymour web page states.  And is cheaper than the EN-48.

Here is a photo of one mounted on a 68 302 Z28:     http://picasaweb.google.com/LucasRestorations/JayS68RSZ281#5252024307394294850

This photo is from an engine on a 68 Z28 in a car being restored by Lucas Restoration.  Don't know if this is the original mount but it looks like the ones displayed above.

Well if the one above is correct, try this link:     http://www.paragonreproductions.com/popup.aspx?src=images/Product/large/1720.jpg 
Does this one look correct?

If so the catalog information is:     http://www.paragonreproductions.com/p-357341-engine-mount.aspx

Haven't seen these mounts in person but I was thinking of ordering them for my '68 Z28 project.  Ceck out this link:  http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?userwatch~partnumstring~cadeiijf~104C~~~~F

They are built like the original non safety mounts.  Maybe someone has ordered these before and might have more information.

I bought mine at this link listed below but you have to buy a minimum of one case (6 Cans)
           http://www.ryderfleetproducts.com/cgi-bin/ryderfp/products/product_detail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1075969558.1242176029@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadegmkekmdecfkmcgfmdfoldflm.0&oid=49808

Like Jerry said above......it is not as thick and it shows the detail of the cast iron better.

I think Quatra is repackaging the Seymour paint and marketing under their name.......and selling it for more money.  I think John and I had this discussion before and came up with the same conclusion.

Jerry
Well I found the Seymour for a lot less than the Quanta.....bought 6 cans shipped to me for a total of $24.33.  Thanks again guys for helping me out.

Hey ....Thanks, Jerry....Was looking at the Seymour but had not seen any comments on it.  Will sure keep it in mind.  Now back to stripping and cleaning the paint off of the parts already painted.  Oh well....one step forward and two back.....LOL.

Many of the Corvette guys who don't have access to spray equipment prefer Quanta's Chevy Engine Orange; good color, and it's not as high-gloss as many of the other rattle-can paints (the original engine paint wasn't high-gloss).

Hey John.....Thanks again for always coming to my rescue, will add this supplier to my list.  Looks like a good site.

The best matching paint is by Martin Senour sold at most NAPA stores, but the bad is they no longer offer it in a rattle can. Their old part number for the rattle can is #7887, and their paint formulas for a spray gun are #90T 9954 or #99L 9954. Both are enamels, but the first one is acrylic enamel which most NAPA dealers can mix. The later is a synthetic enamel which very few dealers still stock. I have not found a suitable rattle can color available anywhere, but then again I haven't painted an engine with spray paint in years, it is all done with a spray gun.........................RatPack................
RatPack....this looks like the paint you mentioned....just not from NAPA though.

Thanks for the info....will put this on my list of supplies and suppliers.

Can someone recommend a good engine enamel that looks  like the original?  I started painting some of my external engine parts today and am not pleased with the color hue.....seems to be somewhat subdued....not bright enough as I want it to be.  It is VHT Sp123....makes a good finish but It does not seem to be the right hue.

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

405  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Ricks pistons on: April 09, 2009, 03:17:42 PM
Oh, another item.  I don't know for sure if these pistons are weight compensated, that is if they are the same weight as the original forged ones.  We didn't pay any attention to this detail because we had the rotating parts rebalanced.
